House Of The Dragon: Introduced An Antagonist Worse Than Joffrey

The new villain of Game of Thrones spin-off House of the Dragon could be worse than Joffrey or Ramsay Bolton.

Here is everything you need to know.

House of the Dragon introduces a cute little boy as its new antagonist

In the most recent episode of House of the Dragon, we saw the introduction of King Viserys, his new wife Alicent Hightower, and their baby, Aegon.

The third episode jumped forward to the point where they are seen celebrating the boy’s second “name day” or birthday.

Also, Rhaenyra is Aegon’s older half-sister. Although she is now just a baby, she anticipates that she will grow up to be a nasty human.

Furthermore, it is suspected that a brutal civil war will take place between Rhaenyra and Aegon over who will succeed the King on the Iron Throne.

The series will take a few more jumps, where Aegon will eventually age. British actor Tom Glynn-Carney will be seen as an adult Aegon in upcoming episodes. Tom is 27 years old and is recognized for his work in Dunkirk.

Additionally, Paddy Considine plays Viserys, while Emily Carey appears in the role of Alicent Hightower. Milly Alcock, on the other hand, is seen as Rhaenyra.

A look at the third episode of House of the Dragon

The third episode of House of the Dragon is titled “The Second of His Name”.

In the series premiere episode, we saw the traumatic death of Queen Aemma. Additionally, it included the King naming Princess Rhaenyra as heir to the throne.

Meanwhile, the second episode, The Rogue Prince, focused primarily on the King’s duty to remarry. His marriage to Alicent was announced in the same episode.

In the next episode, it appears that Rhaenyra is in the marriage hot seat.

Meanwhile, the Hand of the King Otto Hightower rejects his brother as they discuss who will be the successor to the Iron Throne.

Alicent’s father says that the King sees Aegon as his successor and prefers Rhaenyra to be his heir.

Brother Hightower, on the other hand, says sternly, ‘Then it is up to you to make him see it, Lord Hand.’

As the episode progresses, we see the King making a promise to Rhaenyra.

He says: ‘I hesitated at one point. But I swear to you now, in memory of your mother, that you will not be supplanted.
